The leaders who gathered in compliance with NCDC guidelines at the Council’s Multipurpose Hall in Igarra expressed readiness to follow Governor Obaseki on any political sojourn.

The various APC ward leaders who spoke attested to the unprecedented infrastructural and human capital development the governor has afforded Akoko-Edo people.

The party leaders said Governor Obaseki has beamed a proven developmental light on the local government as such they wouldn’t go back to the era of darkness.

In his address, the immediate past Speaker of Edo State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon.(Alhaji) Kabiru Adjoto assured those present of the governor’s continued interest in the development of Akoko-Edo Local Government Area.

The former Speaker also admonished unscrupulous elements whom he accused of stoking political crises to desist from such.

“We are aware our brothers from the other divide are planning to unleash mayhem on Obaseki’s supporters in Akoko-Edo; I will advise them to shun the dastard agenda for the common peace of our people”, he said.

When Adjoto inquired of the leaders’ stance should the governor chose to run in another party, they all chorused: “Anywhere Obaseki goes,we go”

Edo State Commissioner for Energy and Electricity, Hon. Akin Agbaje who was present at the meeting said Obaseki’s scorecard in Akoko-Edo would make the people queue behind him in any election.
